Tatu Debut Reeks Of Exploitation

Malcolm X Abram of the Beacon Journal reviewed ‘200 Km/hr in the Wrong Lane’, the debut effort by t.A.T.u. Abram writes, “Despite the singers’ apparent sincerity (the CD also includes some ‘behind the scenes’ interview footage), the whole endeavor smells of exploitation. The image of a group of grown men trying to express the emotions of two girls and their forbidden love seems a bit unseemly and disingenuous. Then again, perhaps 42 minutes of carefully constructed and marketed dance-pop can help a few kids feel better about their own ‘forbidden’ feelings.”

January 19, 2003 – Chuck Campbell of Scripps Howard News Service reviewed t.A.T.u.’s English debut ‘200 KM/H in the Wrong Lane’, giving it a C grade. Campbell writes, “It’s safe to say t.A.T.u. has an angle America’s pop scene has never witnessed: two pretty teenage Russian lesbians who get it on with each other. That’s the novelty of the duo’s video for ‘All the Things She Said,’ where Lena Katina and Julia Volkova don school uniforms and make out in a rainstorm, their shirts clinging to their bodies. Contrived? Absolutely.”
